May 14, 2018 | Emily Taylor
A study published recently in Journal of American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry found that school-based mental health services delivered by teachers and staff can significantly reduce mental health problems in elementary-aged children. The researchers reviewed 43 studies involving nearly 50,000 children who had received school-based mental health services. One of the methods the research showed to be especially effective is blending behavioral and mental health services into classroom instruction.
